Southern Illinois Gains a Public Relations Firm

Carbondale, Illinois – June 16, 2013 –Sidney Rehg launched Piranha, a public relations and branding firm, in late May in Carbondale, Illinois. 

The company focuses on providing business with improved brand image and outreach to the community in a digital environment.  Piranha already produces work for multiple businesses located in the St. Louis area.

Sidney previously held the title of public relations director for the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) Raymond D. Wiley chapter at Southern Illinois University Carbindale.  While PR director, Sidney assisted in major events including a professional development workshop and Shop With a Cop, which provided shopping sprees for families before the December holidays.  Sidney also competed on the SIUC debate for the last two years, taking third in the nation both years.  Prior to his SIUC success, Sidney managed internet content for a large automotive dealership in the St. Louis region as an internet sales manager.

“With the experience I gained through prior employment and SIUC, the moment to launch Piranha came easy.  I felt especially inspired after attending the professional development event thrown by PRSSA and the opportunity to see Daymond John speak at an event thrown by the Student Programming Council,” said Rehg.
